Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie are Not Adopting Syrian Baby

Despite rumors to the contrary, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not adopting a child from Syria.

According to People, the reports that the 39-year-old actress and 51-year-old actor are expanding their family are “totally false” and “absolutely not true.”

The couple shares six children – Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 8, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Brad is currently busy filming his upcoming movie The Big Short in New Orleans, La.

Based on the book by Michael Lewis, the film follows the men who made millions from a global economic meltdown.

    Can only hope there are no serious issues with “Africa”, and production will still go ahead.

    It would be wonderful if they expanded their beautiful family. But if not that is good too. I remember seeing Z for the first time when Brad was caring her to see Mrs Goodess on the movie set of The Good Sheppard. He had the baby bottle in his back pocket. SO FFFNNN HOT!!! Love them all. Best wishes to the whole familym

  • Dawne

    clearly UP.

  • Jana500

    Why is the media so irresponsible? It takes nothing to know that refugee children are ineligible to be adopted. The media must know this but they choose to publish what they already know is untrue.

    Why even give this any prominence at all, Jared?

    Making things up is not gossip.

  • Love Conquers All

    OMG, finally I can have time to post here without my college courses getting me so busy. Nice seeing everyone here, so glad I’m back, almost in a month I will be graduating.

  • Guest

    they can Adopting me ! I would fine with that

  • Love Conquers All

    Honestly it’s clearly obvious that the media doesn’t care about the facts of adoption. It’s really disgusting that media are not doing their homework, adoption is a serious, and personal matter to deal with. When it comes to Brad and Angie, their one thee top individuals to make any buzz in the media. The media will keep throwing assumptions at both of them to wanting an reaction. Brad and Angie do it best when they ignore the media and tabloids.

    Awww, thanks. So happy to see you Wonderbust, it’s been forever since I seen you and the others. College has kept me way busy. lol.

  • Love Conquers All

    Like a gazillion times. LOL. Damn Ticky has been out bid by her peers. Didn’t Ticky use to work with Nicole Holofcener before a few years ago?

  • Wonderbust

    Had to smack a few trolls on deadline, especially our obsessed JP hater Mike who appears on every JP thread. I doubt deadline will publish my response

  • Wonderbust

    Yes and the movie itself actually got good reviews that’s why I know ticky probably wanted the role

  • Wonderbust

    I miss the parties in college, not the work lol. I graduated a few years ago so I remember how exciting graduation time is

  • Love Conquers All

    What in the world is going with ‘Africa’ production? Like how did the budget become so unreasonable high with this project, yeah that Deadline article sounds really fishy. If that article is true, I hope pre-production won’t stall because of so-called budget reasons. Let’s wait for Angie’s word on this project.

    I don’t trust deadline ever since Nikki left and they tend to exaggerate things. For all we know, all problems could already be solved

  • Love Conquers All

    You clearly had a roll in college because I rarely enjoy parties during college these days. Today’s parties are so wild and so much craziness. I remember one time during my freshman year, I went to this party and someone ended with being injured and resulting to having a coma in the hospital .

  • Love Conquers All

    Deadline is a version of People, InTouch and US Weekly all into one. Also the pre-production for Africa has been very secretive and I think because Angie doesn’t wanna revel too much about the project.

  • Love Conquers All

    Gosh darn-it, Ticky missed her prime time opportunity. LOL.

  • Wonderbust

    I was in college 4 years ago lol so in not that old. I remember all of that. I went to a top 20 university(not revealing which one cause of trolls)that was also big on partying so I’ve seen it all. Wonder if Tamfulofshitt will be able to find me now since I’ve given out hints lmao

  • Love Conquers All

    Understandable. The trolls are very crazy. I would be discreet too. LOL.

  • wika

    Didn’t they just listed one more person on board for Africa? If theyre having those problems, how did they manage to get one more person on board??? LOL

    This is also why I hate that leakey is going around talking about Africa lol stfu… Brad and Angelina have not even issued any public announcements on it lol…

  • busted

    Angie nor anyone from the Studio have said anything about this. Angie nor Brad have said anything about this project at all. So all we have is an article from Deadline..which as we all know are not above printing articles to get attention. I guess using Angie’s film is a way to do it. When the people involved start to talk then I’ll listen.

  • Bwest

    Old news and all the fans of angelina Jolieknows it’s fake for months! Jared, you’ve donebetter!Need good news to keep your record number of comments on this gorgeous couple.The truth is always the best option.

  • Love Conquers All

    After what to Unbroken, I think Angie and the studio is very cautious to speak anything about Africa. Angie had a very target on her back during the release of Unbroken by critics and the media. Again I believe both of them are being cautious to say anything related about the project until shooting finally begins.

  • Passing Through

    Oops…put it on the wrong thread…

    Of course they’re not adopting a Syrian baby. Why did Peeps even bother with this nonsense? Jared, too, for that matter…

  • Love Conquers All

    I know many of you guys are probably not excited for the next up-coming Avengers-Age of Ultron that is opening on May 1. But as a nerd I bought advance tickets to see the film and I’m pumped up for it. Me and seven of my friends are planing to see it together. One my friends James, who is a comic book nerd and marvel junkie. Keeps telling me that of the rumors of Angie directing Captain Marvel is very strongly credible and likely. Because Disney did not denied the rumor or addressed it, also last week a reporter from The Wrap, kept bringing up the rumor of Angie likely directing Captain Marvel.

  • JJt

    I’m kinda excited even though I really didn’t like the first Avengers movie. But I loved both Captain America movies so maybe I’ll like Age of Ultron.

  • JJt

    I think People mag did b/c UsWeekly is the one behind it. That’s only way I can see them doing this.

  • Passing Through

    OT -

    Am I the only one LMAO at KStew’s obvious PR game? Getting papped holding hands with her girlfriend after RPattz’s engagement news when just 2 months ago she was acting like they were just friends. “I don’t care if Rob’s getting married! I’m gay and always was!”

    I guess those few remaining TwiHard hold outs have taken up Ticky’s old spot on the beach and are screaming at the ocean tonight…

  • Love Conquers All

    Same here. I really enjoyed both Captain America:The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy. Not a fan of the Thor films and the Iron Man.

  • Susan

    Maybe Richard Leaky will pipe down.

  • Observer2

    I agree with JJt, that was PEOPLE’s way of calling out Us Weekly.

  • Lily

    I thnk it is great they shot down the rumor because it spread everywhere all over the world. I hate people think they are addicted to having children. I don’t think they will add more, they have teenagers to deal with that is a lot stress.

    Disney Developing ‘Pinocchio’ For Latest Live Action Update


    RTOFLMAO. Pinocchio is insulted. He said Ticky’s nose was always huge. His only grows when he lies so she had a head start.

  • JJt

    I liked the first Thor but the second one was so boring. I think the first Iron Man is the best from Marvel but the second was by far the worst of the 3 films. I wonder why lol

  • toastie postie

    :o) – Poor Pinoc.

  • Love Conquers All

    And I thought Ticky’s fanbase was loony crazy but holly shiit Kristen S. and Robert P. fan base are extreme craziness. Their are still holding out hope that they can get back together. Talk about loony talk. LOL

    Serioulsy? It did way better than I thought it would. I figured it would be around 10-12 pepole and 5 theaters. Go Ticky! It’s your birfday!

  • Love Conquers All

    Oh we know why Iron Man 2 sucked but let’s not further that discussion. LOL. Though I do agree that first Iron Man movie was thee best of all of the other Iron Man movies.

  • toastie postie

    I would be excited, if it was centered on Scarlet Witch. She and her love interests, fascinated me. SW and her brother, Quicksilver, were bad guys for awhile with their dad Magneto. Then they saw the light. Started collecting Avengers comics when my son was around 10 – he’s in his 30′s now. I always thought Angelina would have made a great Scarlet Witch.

  • Observer2

    Why should they be holding out hope? According to them, they’re together/married and have a secret child. LOL

    They’ll probably blame Pattinson and his fiance for turning Kristen gay and ruining it for them.

    They had a dream!

  • toastie postie

    I also liked the ones you mentioned. Only saw one Thor movie and it was okay. Oddly enough, I’ve never seen any of the Iron Man movies. Hmmm.

  • Love Conquers All

    I swear most these people in these movie craze fandoms need literally ‘let go’ because it’s getting embarrassing for these people. But then again they can’t see the reality.

  • toastie postie

    Dancing the Cabbage Patch, in honor of her great box office numbers – see I can be nice.

  • Observer2

    What’s scary is these are grown women. Not teenagers. LOL

  • Love Conquers All

    ITA, I’m really keen and very interested new characters like Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and of course Ultron. Honestly I was never a avid comic fan but lately for an odd reason my friends James keeps informing me of these comic books. I’m also very excited about the Captain America: Civil War, that’s gonna be a hell of a movie.
